The Great Cover-Up

Some women want a fabulous cover-up that says I came to look great while I lounge.  Some want plus size modest swimwear and a cover-up can be just the answer to add a little more of a modest touch.  Sexy or modest, beach or pool, these are some of the best bathing suits for curvy women that you can find on Amazon.

Long Sheer Open Front Kimono Cardigan

This cardigan has a great flowy feel but don’t expect much frontal coverage.  The colors and pattern make a great compliment to a bright blue swimsuit.

Short Sheer Kimono Cardigan

This kimono has a light voile feel and pairs with everyday outfits as well as swimsuit coverage.

Long Flowy High-Low Maxi/Caftan

Available in 19 patterns and colors and easily fits larger frames. 

Two-Piece Maxi with Chiffon Skirt

Over 30 colors up to 3XL.  The skirt can be a bit long if you’re under 5’ 4” without heels.  

Two – Piece Tankini with a One Shoulder Ruffle

A one-shoulder ruffle with true support and built in bra.  The ruffle also doesn’t overpower like some ruffles can feel on larger breasts. The top also pairs well with other bottoms you may have so select a good color that will go well with what is already in your closet.

Halter Bikini 3-Piece Set with Cover-Up

Sizes 16 to 24 in 6 colors/patterns. Very flattering and the cover-up works well over other swimsuits.  I wasn’t expecting to love this one but I really do!

Athletic Rash Guard Tankini with Capris

Order a size up to accommodate larger cup sizes.  Available in over 30 colors and patterns available in sizes up to 4XL.

One-Piece One-Shoulder Mesh Slimming and Supportive Swimsuit

14 colors in sizes up to 3X.  No reason to fear the mesh, it’s very comfortable even if you’re new to exposing a little more skin.

One-Piece Boyshort Retro Swimsuit

Sizes 12 – 24 in 14 colors/patterns.  Love this one, it’s very flattering and comfortable.  My personal favorite.

One Piece Mesh Swimdress

Available in over 40 different styles, colors, and patterns up to a size 22.  A coverup and swimsuit in one with support and nice coverage while still feeling sexy and care-free.

Why Cover-up?

Maybe it’s a comfort thing but I love the lounging aspect, especially while on a resort.  You can easily go from your lounge chair to the dining room with the right cover up.  Remember some dining rooms on the resort may have dress requirements that won’t allow for swimwear.  A gorgeous cover-up has great double duty benefits to take you from the pool or beach to a short walk or a seaside lunch.

You don’t have to cover up!

While I love a cute cover-up, you do not have to. Whether you consider yourself to be curvy, plus-sized, plump, or chubby, you are absolutely gorgeous and deserve a swimsuit that makes you feel incredible. If you pick something that makes you feel incredible, you will look incredible because confidence shines bright.

Stop fidgeting. I have noticed that I am more prone to fidgeting when I’m uncomfortable. If the suit is too big, too small, too tight, or any tiny little bit of discomfort will ruin my mood. Just keep trying until you find the perfect match. Comfort is key.

There are certainly plenty of places to look for plus size travel clothes and resort wear but I wanted to be sure that a decent suit didn’t have to cost $100+. Amazon had many options often for $20 – 40. I was surprised by the amount of support some have, the tummy tucking abilities, and the styles from rash guards to 2 piece bikinis. I was not disappointed and I hope you won’t be either.
